Description:Jim Shaw’s series Distorted Faces depicts a surreal world of twisted characters and mask-like features that tend toward the carnivalesque. Through experimenting with graphite, airbrush and Prismacolor on paper, Shaw transformed what he refers to as “depressing little vignettes” into images that shift precariously in the subconscious from the familiar to the grotesque.
